The piece was hand-carved by Tom Taber Woodendare, Inc studios in partnership with Hersey Kyle, Jr (both men renowned decoy carvers) for the 1982 Medallion Series line. The piece is life-size and features the likeness of a beautiful mallard male duck.
The figure is expertly hand-polychromed and adorned with real glass eyes. The duck is signed on the bottom "Tom Taber/Hersey Kyle Jr" and features a brass Woodendare, Inc Medallion Series medal plaque. Figure presents beautifully and is in very good vintage condition, with very minor display surface wear and patina commensurate with age.
